Robots play rock music - level 2

Robots play rock music - level 2

04-07-2013 14:00

What is the future of music? The answer might be: robots. Three robots played at a concert in Tokyo along with a Japanese pop group made up of three women.

The women rehearsed with the robots only once before the gig. They said they were happy with the robots' music as well.

A professor from Tokyo University who helped to design these robots has interesting plans for them. He would like the robots to play in space, on the Moon, Mars or even on one of the moons of Saturn. His biggest goal is to leave our solar system.

Interesting words: rehearse (practise), gig (live concert).
